Playing with pcAnywhere on Mac OS X Snow Leopard
Seeing how we have a licence for pcAnywhere, I thought I’d give it a try.
Symantec likes to use Java to claim they have Mac support, rather than developing native software. Thus, User Interfaces and other admin tools suffer as a result.
There is a KnowledgeBase article here. So firstly you will find on their forums that you need to run this:
udo chmod 774 /Applications/pcAnywhere CrossPlatform.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub
Or it won’t run at all.
Then, when you run the thinHost app, (Host ->Launch) you get
Could not locate thinhost file java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "/usr/local/lib/pcAnywhere/ThinHost" (in directory "/usr/local/lib/pcAnywhere"): error=13, Permission denied
Posts like this will get you nowhere, as they are for Leopard 10.5.
Will keep y’all posted…
